Securely delivering connected healthcare.

Connecting securely to The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) gives healthcare workers more time, control, and clarity to help those in need. Delays can cost lives and livelihoods, so we work with organisations to ensure all HSCN connection services are intelligent for the services they want to deliver.

How to connect to the HSCN.

Sign the HSCN Connection agreement

If you think you’ve signed the HSCN Connection Agreement (which replaced the NHS N3 network in 2018), search either using your organisation name or ODS code. If you don't know it, find it here.
